  1. 1. A brand of the MMS Sales Office: 023 8060 8769 W: E: Draka MMS News March 2015 Precision Cables provides perfect products for UPS HQ The retrofit involved two floors of an office building which needed to accommodate workspaces for around 400 staff. It was an intensive cabling project requiring some 100,000m Cat6a F/FTP design cable together with 2,000m OM3 fibre optic cable. The communications system is centred in two large comms rooms with the majority of the resulting cabling being run under a false floor. Between the comms rooms 24core OM3 BendBright cabling was used. This was the first project on which the BendBright fibre product has been used by the contractor, who was keen to test how the cable performs when subject to significant bends in the cable channels. In this instance the fibre links were all terminated with LC Duplex Patch Panels. The installation progressed smoothly and tested 100% first time. Stephen Johnston of Network 2000 was pleased to deliver a successfully completed project and particularly satisfied with the new cable: “We wanted to try the BendBright fibre to see what it could do. Although this project presented few technical challenges we can see that the product will be excellent for installations where the cable route is more complicated and we need the cable to perform under the stress of severe bends.” UC Connect UC Connect was the product of choice for the 2000 data-point Cat 6a data communications installation in the headquarters building for shipping and logistics giant UPS in Dublin. Network 2000 was the contractor appointed to install the cable system in the newly stripped-out building, with the cable and ancillary products being supplied by Ireland’s leading Draka distributor Precision Cables. Although ultimately the project was a relativelystandard installation, the specification of the cable was changed several times and the consultant relied on technical support from Draka to ensure the right cable design was delivered within a tight time frame.
